Both Sides Now is a multi-colored rectangular fused glass sculpture that consists on a metaphor that evocates the duality of things. This idea is showed to the spectator thanks to the material connections between glass and ceramics. It’s a reflection that makes us realize how there is always another side, everything depends on one’s perspective and perception. There is no unique truth.

The sculpture is made of blown glass canes containing metal oxides. The hollow glass “straight lines” are broken up into smaller units, bundled and melted together. This unit of fragile structural layers is then paired with another piece in ceramic. Subsequently, the two sides are twisted together with thin copper wire.
